@DanielsQueenBee:  Do you have an overbearing mother/future mother-in-law that you can give the reins to?

Just kidding.  😉

Basically, we have what you have so far, plus bridesmaid dresses, cake, and officiant.  The stress of still not having a caterer is starting to drive me nuts, but neither of us has put a lot of energy into looking.  And then there’s the flowers and DJ…

So, I feel your mild panic.  Don’t freak out, it will get done.  If somethings really stresses you out, just ask yourself “Do I really care about this?  Do we need this?” and if the answer is no to the first, then just choose whatever is convenient.  If it’s no to the latter, just leave that shit out.  Chances are, you won’t miss it and neither will your guests.

I’m definitely going to be hitting the planning hard after Christmas!  I just don’t have any energy for it during the holiday season.

If you’ve got the budget you could always hire someone who DOES care, like a planner? Nothing wrong with not caring about all the fluff, except when you want a certain outcome… then you have to do some planning lol

HAHA OMG ARE YOU ME? All that matters to me is that we’re married too! Basically at this point I just want to show up.

My wedding is May 31st and we got a bunch of big decisions out of the way a few months ago but now we’re kinda dead in the water. So far we’ve booked the venue, video/photography, caterer, table and chair rentals, photo booth, day of coordinator, and bought my dress.

I feel like we have soooooo much left to do but I’m just lazy to do it! We need to pick music, DIY stuff, get his freaking suit or whatever he’s gonna wear, flowers, write our ceremony, blablabla.

My fiance is the one with the big(ger) family, but I’ve been doing 95% of the planning! He’ll be done with school this week so the arrangement is that he’ll take over from now until the wedding (I work full-time). This’ll be his job until he finds a job.

Basically what I want to say is don’t feel too bad and don’t put too much pressure on yourself! You have a lot of the big stuff done and it’s so nice that you’re having it at your mom’s. That gives you a lot of breathing room and you can basically move on your own time. It’s hard when you compare yourself to other brides with the same date or later who have done more, but it’s your wedding and you’ll have different priorities than other brides. Good luck!

You were me about three months ago. Then a good friend of mine gave me a good, solid, slap the F out of it and start planning!! Haha, needless to say, that got me going. Because prior to three months ago, I didn’t have much done. Now I’ve got tons. Though my wedding is three months before yours. I really didn’t start planning planning until I was 4 months out. But I’m a known procrastinator, so it’s totally my nature.

And I thought I was abnormal lol. All I care about too is being his wife. I can’t wait for our honeymoon and I cant wait to be living together as husband and wife. But do I care about the wedding lol no. I still have so many things to do and 4 months time but I’m just stressed out to the max and no I’m sitting around doing nothing lol
